If you’ve been struggling to catch fish consistently or wish to hone your river fishing skills, our streamcraft lessons are ideal for you.

Streamcraft isn’t just about fishing—it’s about reading the water, understanding the behavior of the fish, and making strategic decisions. Let’s cut short the guessing game and speed up your learning process.
Our Expert Team
Our instructors are not only ‘mad’ about river fishing but also have a rich experience of trout fishing in running waters. Out there on the rivers and streams, every single day, our guides have honed their skills and are ready to share their wisdom with you.
Our Premier Location
Back in 1994, we chose Alexandra / Thornton as our base, and for a good reason. It’s blessed with two of Victoria’s best rivers within a stone’s throw – the Goulburn and Rubicon. These rivers offer diverse and complementary fishing experiences, making them excellent ‘classrooms’ for streamcraft instruction.
Streamcraft Lessons: What to Expect
Our sessions are tailored to your needs and the prevailing conditions. We might spend time on two rivers, focusing on small and large stream skill-sets, or delve deep into a specific technique on a single river. Here’s a glimpse of what our full-day streamcraft session might include:
- Gear selection and set up
- Reading the water
- Safe and stealthy wading
- Locating trout, fishing methods and selecting flies
- Mastering casting techniques and drag-free drifts
- Ethical interactions with fish, streams, landowners, and other anglers
